We urge you to take some time from your busy schedule and pray for others. Please note that we do not publish the names of the original prayer requests to protect their privacy; however, God knows. Whatever you may be going through in your own life, it always strengthens you when you pray for others.
“My 16 year old son has a marijuana addiction and has started drinking. He was placed out of home last year and is back home but not wanting to follow through with anything. I worry for his future, but know I can’t control him. I’m asking for prayers for us to find our way out of this situation and that he becomes more responsible. “
” We have been struggling with long term financial issues. Trying desperately to recover and just needing additional options and direction for help. Daily financial demands keep piling up leaving a feeling of despair and hopelessness.”
“Went for a family experience in California in June – hit by hackers on my principle bank account. It has been unbelievable ever since. I am 77 and out looking for a job to get this under control. Thank you for your kindness! “
“Pray for me & my family.My 23 year old grandson was murdered in April.Thanks”
“A former co-worker has past away on yesterday. She was shot to death by her boyfriend leaving children behind. May God strengthen her children and family in this time of sorrow.”
“Spiritual peace. To believe what WE believe to tell our children. Faith, believe, live, and always do YOUR VERY BEST! Trials may come but when you believe in HIM, He will make the impossible POSSIBLE!! Just to KEEP THE FAITH!”
“We are financially struggling as a family. Awaiting the sale of a property…and are often caving in and walking in the flesh…..recently my wife said she cant take it anymore and said she wants to leave after 31 years of marriage….pray that i would be more humble, draw near to God and walk in the Spirit. Thank You!”
“I am asking for prayer again and I know that God hears your prayers. I am in need of a financial miracle of $600 because I do not believe that God has it for me to live in my car. He has been there every step of the way and I pray, believe and trust that he will provide. I truly can say He has been there every step of the way. When I ask Him does He have me to become homeless and I receive the answer no. When I ask about where the money will come from, I have not received an answer. The Holy Spirit assures me that a miracle will happen. Thank you and God bless.”
“One of the prayers that I have been praying is, God, remove the filters that I’ve allowed to be put in place. Many of those filters are religious ones. I think those are some of the ones that distort the most.
Anyway, thank you again for taking time out of your day to write to me. There is so much good stuff in what you wrote, I’ll need to read through it a few times. Many things that you said confirm what I have been sensing in my heart, especially about relationships.
When we first began to think that God was leading us to Memphis from Oklahoma, we thought we were going to do some big ministry thing and surely change this city. It’s a long story, but my dad that raised me is not my biological dad. I hadn’t seen him since I was about 6 years old. A few months before we moved here, I got a letter from my biological dad saying that he would like to meet me some time. I never harbored any ill feelings, so I was good with it and we met in Nashville (I was there on business). Turns out, he lives about 20 minutes south of Memphis. I had no idea. In the last several years we have developed a great relationship. He told me a while back that he and his wife had prayed for years for a way for our relationship to be restored. We thought God was moving us here for some great ministry thing, but really, (among other things He had in mind, I’m sure) He was answering my dad’s prayers. You are so right, it’s about relationships.”
“Praying for salvation, healing and a job for Marty and Shane. Thank you.”
“During this process of climbing the freedom ladder I’ve learned to let go of my past mistakes and that these events don’t mean I can’t be a productive member of society moving forward successfully. Giving my life to Christ and trusting He will make a way and open doors I choose to keep closed for so many years through the darkness of addiction. I truly believe all these things are possible with Him and this is just the beginning of an amazing journey.
I am truly grateful for all of your help “
“Our financial partnership will be enough to return to the field in January. We need additional monthly partners and one-time gifts. For opportunities to share more about our work. We will be able to rest well. Guidance in our next term. Pray for our service group in the field – wisdom for our leadership and encouragement for our team as they navigate a season of change.”
“Mike, your kind and caring words have over whelmed me and when I so desperately needed this message. I am fighting depression every day. I will send you my resume and thank you for any help or recommendations. I’ve had to move in with my parents because my money has all but run. God knows the deadline and I keep trusting Him that He’ll see me through this.”
